We’re happy they wanted to highlight and honor breast cancer survivors for October, because as we all know, women come in all shapes and sizes — and all of us are susceptible to the disease. In the Editor’s note on page 21, Madeline Jones gives a strong message: “We should love ourselves in the skin we are in, and that means loving our bodies and taking care of them.” Hear, hear! We’d like to add — it also means loving our bodies even after they’ve been through the wringer. Scars and all, you’re beautiful.
Besides highlighting Amoena’s Fall collections, the issue features tons of fashion and beauty tips. Coats and boots, hot perfumes, and one of our favorites is the natural facial and body scrub recipes starting on page 37. You can try these yourself with ingredients you probably already have at home, and rest easy knowing they don’t have any harmful junk in them.
We also really enjoyed the interview with their cover model (who loved our lingerie!), the Brazillian model, Fluvia (p. 135). She’s got advice for aspiring models, stories about her traveling and trailblazing experiences, and honest insight about body image.
Don’t miss it — you’ll be inspired!
